Mike Januik, formerly the winemaker for Chateau St Michelle has been making wine under his own label for a while now, but he still seems to be undiscovered. I've been a fan of his well-priced, vibrant Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnays. This 2009 Cabernet is off the charts. This wine was the talk of a trade tasting recently and for good reason. It's a mouthful of great Cab fruit, much of it from the great Champoux Vineyard. It's a complex wine with tar, blackberries, lavendar, cedar, and fine-grained tannins, impeccably balanced, with a finish that goes on and on. The 2008 received an other-worldly glowing review from the Wine Spectator and a 94 pt score.
